that could be spent outside of the plan area. prioritized spending $9 million in china town area. that was done for a couple of reasons, many of which have been discussed in the hearings leading up to this conversation. essentially that china town is the densest in san francisco, the most open space poor, as you often hear in our conversations here, and that the analysis the planning department did indicated much of the spillover from increased density created by the new housing and new office space in the plan area would affect not just the downtown and south of market by china town. what is before you today is affirming and supporting what the planning commission did on october 18th. to prioritize spending those impact fees in the china town neighborhood. i want to note quickly the ipic committee on which the rec department has a seat is body charged with the actually allocation of those fees. i believe we talked a little about that in the september hearing but happy to answer more questions on that, as necessary. >> is there any public comment on this item? please come forward
and recreation in china town. the committee is a voluntary organization that has worked with the commission of open space issues over 40 years. we starred in 1969 despite attempt business a developer to turn a playground into a garage. i'm here to speak on the proposed regulation regarding prioritis for the transbay open space impact fees. we are recognized as a es for the transbay open space impact fees. we are recognized as a high needs neighborhood. 40% of our stock in china town is made up of sro units, single room occupancy units that are eight-by-ten. there is barely enough room for a bed. when there is a bed it is standing room only. there is no bathroom in there. no kitchen. there's no closet. if you need to go to the bathroom you need to take with you a flashlight. take with you toll let paper and towels. maybe you need to take with you alcohol or other cleaning solution to clean the toilet. if you leave your toilet paper or soap, somebody is going to take it or steal it. you cannot cook in your unit because there's no kitchen. you have to use a community kitchen. sometimes it does
about manufacturing matt? the numbers came in solid for china, not so good for the u.s. there was a bit of a slip. > > i think some of that is the concern. but at least the silver lining is positive for china. but realize, china is $8 trillion. our market is about twice the size. so we really need those manufacturing numbers to kick in next year. but of course there have been so many good confidence and housing numbers to sort of buttress that weaker number yesterday. > what is your stock strategy in the current market? > > i think the big question everyone has to ask themselves is, do i need microsoft, cisco, and intel in my portfolio? they have been laggards for years. microsoft at least has been paying some good dividends. it's kind of appreciated somewhat over the past couple of years. but you know, that pc market is not really happening; it's all the tablets and the smartphones. so, you have to ask yourself, next year, do i keep these stocks in my portfolio? so many people own them. > yes or no? what is the answer? > > i am going to give them another year, but intel is really on th
conference the next day, i was asked would i not fear this would lead to military clash with china. i said, i was not concerned of that. and when asked why, i said, i think, well, because we have the best damn navy in the world. this was not an extravagant or hyper bolic statement t. was simply a statement of fact. it was a fact that not only i knew. it was a fact which other nations understood. even one carrier battle group had more military fire power than any other nation's entire navy, and we had two of them on the way to taiwan. so, i was confident that no one was going to challenge the fleet that we were sending there. this -- and in fact, they did not challenge it even before our two carrier battle ships arrived in taiwan, the crisis was over and the maneuvers had been subsided. this positive result was possible because of the military capability of our navy and because both carrier battle groups were battle ready and able to steam towards their destination in less than 24 hours. so, why were we able to respond so effectively? certainly one important reason, because the technology in

that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of maintaining that unambiguous military strength. as we sit here this morning aboard the uss macon island, in san francisco bay, looking out to the pacific, it is easy to believe that
